One evening after a time of praying for the pastors, one of the Honduran pastors, Pastor Minellio, was praying for the sick and a few of our team noticed him shaking as he prayed for the one in need, the power of the Holy Spirit being felt strongly by all.
Afterwards there was a time of fellowship under the arbor where we shared lunch and dinner with the pastors and their families. The team that noted the Honduran pastor shaking asked him about that?
He then related the following story. He said that in his village in the mountains one of his friends seem to be depressed and at one point tried to take his life. This pastor and two more friends who loved the man, determined to fast and pray for three days for him with him being continually with them, witnessing their fasting and hearing their prayers.
On the third day, according to this “shaking” pastor, their suicidal friend had a single, violent vomiting episode, and at the same time moment, the three praying friends were knocked to the ground by some unknown force!?
After that moment their friend has been free of oppression, depression, and acts normally. And when our new “quaking” pastor friend prays for people and senses the Holy Spirit is near, he shakes as he prays.
Indeed, he says when it happens to him, he knows or recognizes the Holy Spirit is near to heal or deliver or help.
After watching him, and sensing the Spirit ourselves, we all believe it’s true and happened just that way.
This pastor is a very quiet, always kind, pleasant, and humble – even shy.
We only report what we saw, and felt, and heard. 🙂
The Lord be magnified for helping those in need. And for equipping and empowering His own to help or serve in the process. Amen
